I love the idea of trying new things with my look, especially when it doesn’t involve making appointments and spending time and money. (Although, hey, I like that fine, too!)
Last night, after a great mastermind call in which we all talked about trying new things and taking time to style ourselves, I was inspired to try putting a faux head turban on myself. More of a headband than a turban, but with a knot on the top, like a turban, and for me it was kind of a new look. You might try it, too — it’s just the thing to make your regular-old-standard outfit pop! The one piece of advice is to choose a color that’s really fantastic on you, because the turban will truly frame your face, either for good or not.
And, okay, if I’m not being entirely convincing, please just take a look and see what I’m talking about anyway! (Click through to see the turban pictures and then again further to see the turban tutorial.)
And by the way, the blog where I found this is one I check everyday. Although the blogger is younger than I am and her overall sensibilities are different.
What can YOU do differently — you know, to bust out just a little? Maybe it’s a bag in a color, a larger earring, a different kind of shoe, or a shorter skirt. Go ahead — knock yourself out. (And let me know how it goes.)
